It was love at first for us with this pair. With the perfect hue of indigo gracing the yarn dyed cotton canvas which is applied to the upper of this sneaker, to the aesthetic balance between the indigo and black/brown soles, these have become that daily wear pair. Paired perfect with anything, from jeans to chinos to even shorts, these sneakers are versatile.
Vulcanization is a chemical process by which sulphur is added to rubber to create a more durable material. It was first developed and tested by Vitale Bramani, who used the technology in the production of soles for his company, Vibram. Today, the production of vulcanized sneaker soles is the United States is nonexistent, and even in Japan, there are only two factories that are still able to output vulcanized sneakers. Both of these factories are located in Kurume, Kyushu.
*These sneakers fit similar to Converse Chuck Taylor All-Stars. They are true to size.
